How will I know if my Reading home has dry rot?
The good news about dry rot is that it is relatively easy to spot and if caught quickly enough treatment and prevention is straightforward. If you spot any of the following signs, it is imperative that you act:
- Shrinking and cracking
- Yellowish spots on the wood surface (lower humidity)
- Musty odour
- Visible fungus known as Mycelium (higher humidity)
If you notice the presence of a musty odour accompanied by overly large spores this typically means that severe damage has already been incurred.
How will Prokil treat the dry rot?
At Prokil, we will carefully assess the condition of your timber checking for any of the above signs. Should dry rot be present and not treated the effects could be devastating. Once we have ascertained the severity of the dry rot infestation as well as its source, typically moisture, we can go to work removing and treating the affected areas.
Our skilled Reading team will remove the affected timber and apply an industry grade fungicide to kill off any dry rot that is present. This process also includes unaffected timber as no traces of the dry rot must remain once treatment has been completed.
At Prokil, we can supply the correct treatments as well as maintenance of your property to avert any further occurrence of dry rot. If you suspect that your Reading home has been infested with dry rot, call the dry rot specialists at Prokil today.
